While the idea of marriage, a house, and kids is something that may seem desirable to most women, it is simply not as common as it was 60 years ago. The new age woman wants more out of life before settling down. We want experience and knowledge and also a true understanding of ourselves before we decide to tie the knot with someone else. In the upcoming film “How Do You Know”, starring Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon,Paul Rudd and Jack Nicholson, this concept is explored. Here I will describe some reasons why this will not only be a great movie to see in theaters, but also very inspiring to women everywhere.
This movie is about our main character Lisa (Witherspoon), who is dating Manny (Wilson), a professional baseball player. Lisa is still trying to decide if she and Manny want the same things out of their relationship when she runs into her old friend George (Rudd), who is facing a crisis in his career at the moment. Despite this, George still tries to win the heart of Lisa.
Star studded Cast
One thing that makes a movie great is if they have a talented cast that will have great chemistry. As I stated earlier this movie stars Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd and Jack Nicholson. Not only is this cast talented, but they are all pretty funny. Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd are usually in funny roles so I do not see it being any different here. Reese Witherspoon has played several roles and can be quite funny herself not to mention Jack Nicholson who also has had his fair share of serious and humorous roles. Altogether this cast seems like they will really make the movie stand out.
Being brave enough to ask yourself “what do I really want?”
We live in a world where many women may be insecure about themselves, timid, and or passive. This movie shows a woman who is not afraid to ask herself, ‘what do I really want’ even though it could possibly mean the end of her relationship. This shows that ultimately it is up to you to choose what you want out of life, not the other way around and therefore you have the power to decide if you want this relationship or if you want something else. That is a strong message for any film.
Life can throw you a curve ball, so lookout
This film will showcase the concept of not knowing what to expect next in life. George faces being terminated from his career at the same time he finds someone who he may spend the rest of his life with. This is why it is good to stay nimble in life so as to watch out for the unexpected. The same thing goes for Lisa, since even though she is dating a guy with a prestigious profession, it does not mean he could be the one for her. All in all, this movie shows that when we least expect it, life kind of just, happens.
